Searcher, thanks! I will go to the range again to play and see how frequent it moves to safe. It only did it once, but that is one too many! Guess at this point is send to MM or sell. Unfortunately I already spent over $150 with a local gunsmith and ended resolving the feeder problem myself with a Wolfe spring.

Searcher, This thread has a bunch of good stuff on it. Would it make a good sticky? I put it on my favorites.

Wolff includes a new firing pin spring to offset the increased slide velocity (and firing pin inertia) from installing the new recoil spring. If the old firing pin spring is weak the firing pin may strike the primer as the slide closes...or if the pistol is dropped on the muzzle with the safety off.
.
Personally, I'd install the new firing pin spring. It's easy to do and keeps the springs matched. Just don't use the olive fork...

I'm inclined to agree with Mike. Further, the problems with the first rounds out of the magazine, but not the last, sounds like more of the same.
When the mag is full, the top round offers more drag on the slide, and the rounds offer more resistance to being stripped from the mag.
It sounds like underpowered rounds.
Are you still using the same ammo?

Thanks. I will replace that spring as well. I am using American Eagle 95 gr ball. Thinking hard about the cycling to safe issue. The threat posted did not have any specific solution other than sending the gun in for repair to MM. Just a little frustrated at this point, good thing that I have my trusted P99 to ease my pain!

Here is what you do.

1)new ppk, run it about 400 rounds
2)polish the feeding ramp
3)change the recoil spring
4)look for a gun smith
5)sell it to the people who replied your post. They are happy as long as it has a ppk mark on it.

No need for 4 & 5. Replaced all the springs and finally made it to the range this week. I fired about 150 rounds of Winchester, Blazer and Federal HST. It worked like champ. Guess, I am in love again.

Their nothing better than a PPK/S that working and nothing more of a head ache when not. I had one the safety slipped on I don't remember what my gunsmith did but he fix it in a few min It was something simple.

My present Interarms and me have been close friends over many years It loves Corbon DPX for carry and I have shot a ton of S&B out of it . I have found at least for me . That shooting it 1 handed is best way. Remember the 2 hand hold of today came about around 1970 Cooper and Weaver are the 2 main ones that developed what most use today. But this pistol was around long before that and I feel best used with one hand . I bet in a real up close and personal SD you would draw aand shoot 1 handed.

Thanks, I never tried shooting single hand but may try next time I am on the range. Now looking for a nice holster.

Just picked up one of the new stainless LPCs, and was reminded that stainless often doesn't machine as smoothly as other steels.
While the OP's gun now has some rounds thu' it, a 'fluff n' buff' may still be in order. This is nothing more than hastening the breakin period by using really fine emery cloth on the sliding surfaces. Particularly important are the grooves in the slide; wrap the emery cloth over an old charge card and polish those slots.
The idea is not to remove metal; it is simply to polish it.
Less physical drag would leave the slide travel more freely.
